Chain Bracelet Beading Ideas
I was feeling summery and wanted to make something to suit my mood. I came up with this bracelet which is made of vintage Lucite flower charms in various pastel shades. The charms are wire wrapped onto a silver plated chain. I have finished the bracelet with a classic silver plated heart toggle clasp.
I created this bracelet using a simple bead weaving technique with the combination of Swarovski crystal beads in garnet, citrine, and peridot colors. I added gold metallic seed beads and white glass pearls for more vivid contrast, solidity, and depth. I used metal findings consisting of a sterling silver hook clasp, jumprings, and an extension […]
Pamela Bruce wire-wrapped individual spiral-shaped shell pieces and burgundy-dyed freshwater pearls together with sterling silver wire to a sterling silver chain. What inspired her to create this bracelet is that she liked the way the shells looked, especially their color combination of browns, burgundies, pinks, beiges, and greens. She found the burgundy-dyed freshwater pearls to […]
My inspiration being the summer season, I wanted to make something bright and colourful and there’s nothing better than ice-creams, ice-lollies and lollipops to achieve that. I made these beads completely from scratch using various different colours of polymer clay. I marbled the different colours together and rolled them into sausage shapes and then twisted […]
I love wire work. I created this piece from leftover bits and pieces I had here and there: washers from my husband’s shed, buttons from my needlework box, charms from previous projects. I first created the base by making a loop and wrapping the loop on a metal washer and making another loop on the […]
I made this bracelet with faceted Czech glass donuts, sterling silver saucers, and sterling silver round beads. This bracelet has a sterling silver chain extender and sterling silver lobster clasp. Bracelet is strung using .019 Soft-flex beading wire. Bracelet is 7 1/2″ in length and extender is 1 1/4″ in length. I love the two […]
The unique focal bead was the inspiration for this bracelet. I made a double eye-pin out of 18 gauge wire and attached it to two separate lengths of gold chain. I wanted to make the charms out of interesting beads I had in my collection, and I also wanted those beads to bring out the […]
I love wirework, and this piece is designed using simple wire wrapping techniques. You can make this with seed beads as the base or just chain. I made mine with Swarovski bicone size 6 in clear. I then made the dangles with Bali silver beads, pearls in grey and recycled glass beads I made from […]
Blue and green stones helped me create the name of this piece. I strung each bead section onto brass wire and did a simple loop to close each end. Each beaded wire section was attached to brass jump-rings. The focal is the brass filigree ring that I attached to the bracelet by wrapping both sides […]
I often get requests for birthday bracelets. I use the stones that correspond to the birth month and the individuals astrological sign. This piece was inspired by my girlfriends mother “Goldie” who is a lovely, lively, bubbly and happy go lucky lady! I used 24 gauge silver wire to string smokey quartz beads and a […]
This bracelet is very time consuming but very worth it. I started with a link bracelet (chain) with a clasp at one end. You can add jump rings to the other end to lengthen. You thread an headpin with a bicone and attach it to a link. Each link will take up to eight 4mm […]
I created this bracelet so that it would add playful color to any outfit. I fed acid lime gem stones onto a doubled bead wire (for strength) and ended the piece with an adjustable chain clasp for extra length as needed. I finished the chain with a beaded dangle to add detail.
I have wire wrapped some freshwater pearls in lime and spruce to this antiqued silver large round link chain. I have added some 4mm filigree antique silver beads as well for two reasons. One for a decorative touch and second to fill in the gap as the pearls were too small.
I used 6mm hematite hearts, Japanese pink square beads and pink E beads. To attach these beads I used head and eye pins. I chose faceted black chain and plain pink chain to contrast the colours of the bracelet. Finally I finished the piece using a lobster claw clasp. I simply felt in a creative […]
This piece is made of natural, non-viable seeds from the Amazon, fresh water pearls, sterling silver charms, chain and findings. The seeds are attached with head pins to a thick chain to form this unique charm bracelet. Inspired by the Guarasavusu bird of the Amazon rainforest that has brown, yellow, and white feathers.
